Is anybody looking to employ a tiler or does anybody know anybody looking for one or does anyone know any email addresses of any tilers would be much appreciated, i am struggling to find anything on the internet in the uk.

    we recently had some floor tiles laid all 55 square metres of it, we searched high and low for a tiler. The wife decided she found one company and i cannot recall the name of it, shes in Brissy this week, when i get in touch with her i'll ask, turns out the tiler who did the job, was from our old town Nottingham and he was on a working visa, his boss was looking for tilers as he was absolutely flat out, Paul who was the tiler said he was snowed under with work and the company was brill to work for.

    happy new year to you.

     

    My name is Rick. I am 46 (going on 25), a UK London based General Plumber/Bathroom fitter, although originally I was born and raised in the South West of the UK and the lovely country/seaside of Cornwall and Devon. My wife and I are now planning to Emigrate to Australia.

    For the last five years as a self employed Plumber, I have specialised in the non GAS domestic market mostly, fixing leaks, servicing radiator systems, toilets and sinks etc, in homes, shops and pubs. Full bathroom installations, including wall and floor tiling, mains water supplies to wash rooms, bathrooms, washing machines/Dishwashers, coffee machines and the like, in homes, kitchens and bars.

     

    I fix water leaks, install and service radiators, toilets and sinks (kitchen and bathroom). I can plumb in washing machine and dishwashers. Make plumbing connection indoor and outdoor ie outside taps for washing cars, watering plants, fish ponds, swimming pools or out building water supply for converting a spare garage into living accommodation. I do tiling of walls and floors and I'm pretty good at wood work and carpentry. etc, etc, etc. the bloody list is endless.

     

    I also have many, many years experience of warehousing and forklift truck driving with a lift capacity of 4 tonne ((counterbalance with clamp attachment, carpet spike, side shift and rotating forks and some reach-truck in warehouse experience while) Obtained over the years through working for flooring contractor, truck part wholesaler and a paper mill.

     

    My wife is an NHS Nurse who spends most of her week up to her elbows in blood and guts as a Theatre Practitioner, has family already living in Adelaide, whom she has not seen for many years and I, a very dear friend of my family who moved to Seaford Rise, with her 'Roofer' husband and kids the end of last year. So Adelaide obviously would be our first choice for relocation, but beggars can't be choosers, as they say.

     

    The well known turn of phrase 'rip off Britain' is very over used but true. London in particular is most probably the city that typifies the phenomenon more than most here. What with it's Congestion Charge and Exorbitant parking charges, constantly increasing public transport cost. daily hitting the people that drive it's economy; the Tradesmen and the commuters. Every time you take two steps forward some robbing bleeder knocks you back one and you can certainly find it hard to get ahead of the game in this Banker driven city. The crippling economy is driving most people to the wall, which isn't the best state of affairs for tradesmen, as most people can't afford to move property when their families grow. Due mostly to the over priced property market and a massive housing shortage. This tends to force them to renovate the home they are in but instead of getting trades in to help, they choose to D.I.Y. If the phone don't ring you don't earn a living wage. My wife has taken the brunt of it in our home, taking on overtime with a nursing agency to make things meet. Now the TAXMAN demands 40% of her hard earned, which cuts her income by almost half.

     

    The possibility of sponsorship would make my year but not essential.
